The latest available data on Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5 shows that the world is not on track to achieve gender equality by 2030.

COVID-19 and the backlash against women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights are further diminishing the outlook for gender equality. Violence against women remains high; global health, climate, and humanitarian crises have further increased the risk of violence. Women’s representation in positions of power and decision-making remains below parity.

This report, produced by UN Women, presents the latest evidence on gender equality across all 17 SDGs, highlighting the long road ahead to achieve gender equality. It emphasizes the pivotal force gender equality plays in driving progress across the SDGs, and women and girls’ central role in leading the way forward.
